OpenStep, GNUstep "A little over one year after the 1.0 release, I'm happy to announce the 1.6 release of the GNUstep Objective-C runtime. This provides a superset of the functionality of Apple's Mac OS X 10.7/iOS 5 runtimes and provides a solid foundation for Objective-C and Objective-C++ development on Free Software platforms."

I've never used any of the GNUStep / Cocoa API, but I really appreciate any work that furthers the option of using Objective-C on Linux. I used it to make one of my video games (Objective-C + Allegro) and it quickly became one of my favorite languages. ;)

Actually, this is exactly why I wrote my ObjC framework - I didn't want to be limited to OS X and write software using one framework that exists everywhere.

If you're interested, have a look at https://webkeks.org/objfw/. It's quite mature already, yet there's still to do and not many use it yet. Be sure to check out the development version, as the last release is quite outdated and a new release will come soon!

Very nice. I downloaded the documentation and checked it out.

How far do you plan on taking it? Will you be implementing any sort of GUI toolkit?
